Cruise Holidays As Incentive For Employees


Visitors: 195

There are 2 main reasons for an employee incentive program. You would want to reward your good performers. You would also want to motivate the whole team and to prevent premature burnout. According to studies, all workers will hit a plateau in their work performance occasionally. When productivity drops, it is time to intervene and perk up the team. A cruise holiday is one of the best ways to reward your staff. It is also becoming very popular as a mean for teambuilding and for a management retreat.

Many of the major cruise lines offer customized corporate programs. The good thing about cruises is that your employees will be able to relax and rejuvenate themselves. Studies also show that relaxed and happy employees are more productive. What could be more relaxing than a cruise holiday? The combination of the sun, sand and the sea would do wonders for anybody.

There are many international cruise packages to choose from. There are cruise packages ranging between 3, 4, 5 and 7 nights in length. Depending on the itinerary, your employees can visit the exciting Caribbean seas or the exotic Southeast Asia countries or even the wild and untamed Alaska.

Your employees will appreciate the fine dining, five-star service and the many activities onboard. You will appreciate the price tags because cruise holidays are getting cheaper with many cruise lines offering special deals.

For the young and adventurous, there is the chance to swim among sea creatures in some of the best diving and snorkeling spots in the world. For those who love history, there are many routes to historic sites.

For the singles and unattached, you may want to organize a special singles cruise. Romance come easy while you are having fun amidst romantic locations. The cruise lines also have special singles cruises where they organize fun activities to allow singles to meet. If your employees do not meet somebody special, at least they will have a great time and be appreciative to you for that.

You may also want to give something special for your employee's family as well. The married employees will really be appreciative of this. Many cruise lines cater for young families with children. There are well-run programs and activities for children. Many will provide a chaperon so that the parents can enjoy their own time.

How About a Free Honeymoon?

Now wouldn't your employee love you for that? Imagine being newlywed and given a free honeymoon by your boss. Imagine being free to spend time with your spouse in a romantic atmosphere and to explore exciting places. That would be the ultimate employee incentive.

What Your Employee Look Forward to?

There are plenty of things to do during a cruise. While the ship is underway, there are many entertainment and activities onboard. One can play volleyball or tennis, learn rock climbing or join in the aerobics and yoga classes. At night, the ship usually comes alive with live shows and performance and one can party all the way till sun up. Most ships have casino onboard. Besides the activities onboard, the port calls and stopovers offer opportunities to dive, snorkel, hike or even for helicopter tours, depending on the locations. Now all these would look really impressive on your company's incentive program fact sheet.
